Let’s start with a little about myself and my entry into the photo booth biz.
Like many, I came to be in the photo booth business through a connected industry. As a Dj with many years experience; I consider there to be no dance floor that I couldn’t conquer...
That was until I was taught some humility by the rise of the photo booth!
I was Djing & MCing a wedding at a venue on the Mornington Peninsula. To tell you the truth it was a bit of a mess. The venue had double booked my clients and had re-located the reception to another building which was a less than perfect space for a Wedding Reception. It was a beehive with lots of oddly shaped connecting rooms on different levels. So there I am playing background music to a wall and a brand new but somewhat empty dance floor. “Where is everybody?” As I make my way through the beehive towards the foyer (radio mic in hand), I see the end of a long line of people waiting to use the photo booth. [LIGHTBULB MOMENT] “Wow! I gotta get me one of these!”
This is me.
Where do all the Photoboothers come from?
So, why is a photo booth such a must-have?
ENTERTAIN YOUR GUESTS.
By far the #1 reason for having a photo booth at your Wedding Reception would be the entertainment it brings to you and your guests. I’m sure there’s some boffin-type research material I could insert here to explain the lure of the photo booth and why they’re so popular. But the fact that there’s almost always a queue of excited peeps eagerly waiting their turn to use the booth is explanation enough.
CAPTURE THE MEMORIES.
Your wedding day is one of the most important events in your life. Why wouldn’t you want to capture every possible moment? Having a photo booth will ensure you capture more love, more laughs and more great memories from your special day.
YOU CAN’T PUT YOUR SMARTPHONE ON THE FRIDGE.
One of the coolest things about having a photo booth is that your memories aren’t locked away in someone’s smartphone. They’re instantly printed onto high-quality paper that will withstand the test of time. Most photo booths will print 2 copies of the photo strips. One for your guests to keep and one to be placed in an album or guest book. Just think of how awesome it’s going to be when you and your new Boo sit down the next day and go through the album together. You’ll go back to it again and again while you’re waiting for your professional photos to arrive.
TO SUM IT ALL UP.
Having a photo booth really is a wonderful addition to your special day/night. It escalates the fun to a whole new level. Think of it as the ultimate gift you can bestow upon your family & friends. You will, in turn reap the rewards of having a thoroughly entertaining visual record of your Wedding Reception.
We’ve recently added a hot new booth to our lineup.
The Selfie Station is a high-tech open air style photo booth that's capable of doing more than just taking and printing your selfies for you. It also captures animated Gifs. Gifs are a series of still images which are made into a movie.
Warning: They're strangely addictive and lot's of fun to make.
The Selfie Station is also capable or sharing your images and Gif movies instantly to your email or smartphone via SMS. From there you can share to your favourite social media platform.
A couple of weeks ago Glam Photobooths and Armada Dj Services joined forces (We do that often) to provide a total entertainment solution at the wedding reception of Shannan & Lauren Valentine at Settlers Run Golf & Country Club.
The photo booth was a massive hit and the dance floor kicked off nice and early with some big tunes from the 90s. Full credit to Lauren & Shannan for their song selections. It was a really fun night.

Last night I had the pleasure of photo boothing at Capri Receptions in Geelong. It was great to see Angelo & the Capri Crew hard at work doing what they do best. I'm always impressed with the level of hospitality & customer service there.
It was nothing short of a perfect night for Chris & Therese. Thank you for choosing Glam Photobooths. Here's my favourite pic from the night.
Here's a snapshot from Saturday night's wedding reception out at the beautiful Elizabethan Lodge in Blackburn Nth. The perfect place for a chapel or garden wedding and maybe even some photo booth fun with us.
A couple of months ago I had the pleasure of providing a total entertainment solution at the Wedding Reception of Steve & Erin Rogers. Of course everyone had a ball in our photo booth. What you might not know is that I am Dj with over 25 years of experience.
So while the photo booth was capturing all the fun memories that Steve & Erin will keep forever, I was busy guiding the room through the formalities of the evening and providing the perfect musical backdrop for the occasion.
Wedding Receptions can be challenging, but I find them the most rewarding. Especially when you know you’ve made such a difference to a new couple’s most important occasion.
Big thanks to Steve & Erin for entrusting me with such a special moment in their new lives together.
Hi there, my name is Ian Wagner. I purchased Glam Photobooths about 9 months ago and I'm happy to report that we're doing well. One thing that wasn't doing so well was our old website. While it looked okay on the surface, underneath that exterior was a very internet-unfriendly place for us to be. For a start, there was no mobile site or blog. Now with the new site up and running, I’ll turn my attention to adding more content and functionality. I've already made a start with a gallery of our most popular backdrops for customers to choose from, and of course this first blog post. Please feel free to comment, make suggestions & give us feedback. It all helps us to improve our service to you.
In closing, I want to thank all our valued customers for their continued support over the past months. I've really enjoyed being part of your special events. Our goal at Glam Photobooths is to provide such a great photo booth experience that you will only think of us for your next celebration.
